A few days ago we shared a video about how to turn the streets of San Francisco into a photo studio to take the perfect corporate headshots with the photographer Carl Costas ( you can watch it here).

Carl send us other great behind the scenes video to understand how he got this amazing picture with the Chef Taro Arai, Lord of Rice:

Carl explains ( read original post here)
I’ve always said that putting outgoing and adventuresome people in front of the camera is tantamount to sitting an MIT mathematician in front a rookie black jack dealer. It just ain’t right. It’s too easy. And the outcome is almost always bananas. Photographing the gregarious chef Taro Arai recently was proof positive. There wasn’t much I suggested creatively that he wasn’t completely game for. The result was a bunch of great images, all kinds of fun, and a day to remember. For a look behind the scenes, check out the video below.
Thanks for sharing Carl. More inspiration: carlcostas.com
